This is the first step you need to do in order to upload your schedule to your account on the secure 1-800 Notify web server for phone calls to be made (or text messages to be sent) to your patients.
1.) Start AdvancedMD.
2.) Select Reports > Appointments > Appointment Confirmation Detail from the menu.
3.) On the next window, select the DATE RANGE for the specific date you wish to export, if today is MONDAY and then if you want to send reminders 2 days ahead (which we recommend), then select WEDNESDAY'S date.
Click "Select All" for columns.
Check the check box next to "Export on Run"
Select "CSV (COMMA DELIMITED)" under "Export on Run".
Then, click Run Report.
TIP: If you have the correct security rights, you can click the Save Setting button to save your changes.
TIP: Click the "Star" next to Appointment Confirmation Detail in the left column to make it a favorite and easier to find next time.
4.) Depending on your browser, a few different things could happen next.
If you see a yellow bar at the bottom of your screen with OPEN, SAVE, CANCEL buttons, then click the pull-down next to the SAVE button and select **SAVE AS.
**NOTE: This step may be a little different for you if you are not using Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser. But look for a "SAVE" or "SAVE AS" button so you can save the exported file.
If you don't see this yellow bar, your system may simply save the file into your "DOWNLOADS" folder.
You may be asked for a location and file name, as shown in the next step.
5.) Now, select a folder to save the file where you can easily find it to select it when you want to upload it to 1-800 Notify and create a file name that is easy to remember. Usually the date of the export works well. If you are exporting for 7-23-2013, then name the file the same thing.
